    I just switched from RoadRunner to SBC Yahoo dsl.... I got it set up on one computer to create the account. Then I tried to set it up on my netgear rp114 cable/dsl router... I set up the pppoe settings with my username and password. I was not able to access the web. I reset the router and the dsl modem, a few minutes later it started working. It workd great, I went and got a drink. When I got back it quit working. I reset the modem and router again, and was back in business. This keeps happening. What am I missing?? The router workd great with the roadrunner....

    If you installed EnterNet on your PC, you can now remove it since the router is logging you on and keeping the connection alive. More than likely, there is an interaction between the SBC software on the PC and the activites on the router.
